R/C Sports Aircraft from Scratch by Alex Weiss

The book, R/C Sports Aircraft from Scratch by Alex Weiss is a wonderful book on building Aircraft R/C's from Scratch. I love that it's not a huge book and more just a small guide that gets you the details and non of the filler! It's easy to understand and even though this was out in 2002, it's still very useful for me as a beginner.
When you begin into the book, there is plenty of steps before start building and working on the aircraft of choice. First, you'll be asked what you want to make and why you should start from scratch. The material you'll need and much more! I think with each part of the book, it has you covered. You will get a perfect plane crafted because this book covers it all! There isn't anything left out, which every tiny and large detail is placed inside this book and not hard for any first timer to understand.
So this book to me is a wonderful starter book for beginners or anyone, which is the reason why I was attracted to reading it! Plus, I wanted to know everything from tools and equipment I need to use and get to put my own R/C Plane together. Even if It's a small plane, at least I can say I made something and it actually worked! Also, there are a few photos in the book, giving you a view of what part of the plane or an example of the piece it may be talking about. However, it's not all illustrated, but packed with helpful text to guide you through.
Finally, if your starting out with creating R/C planes, than maybe try taking a look into this book for your guidance and easy to follow ideas to get you started!
